Raspberry Ice Cubes

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 pint raspberries

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 to 5 cups water
  • 8 lemons juiced


  • To make the raspberry ice cubes, add one cup of water and half cup of sugar to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the raspberries and let cook for about five minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and use a potato masher or fork to gently mash the raspberries. You want some of them to stay mostly intact and others to let out their delicious red juices.
  • Let cool for about 20 minutes, and then pour the raspberries and syrup juice into ice cube trays.
  • Allow four to six hours for complete freezing. Makes 30 to 36 ice cubes.
  • For the simple syrup, add one cup of sugar and one cup of water and bring to a boil, stirring once or twice.
  • Then remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes before adding to the lemon juice.
  • Juice the lemons and pour the juice into the serving pitcher.
  • Dilute with three to four cups of water, depending on how strong you like your lemonade.
  • Stir in the slightly cooled simple syrup and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  • Serve the fresh squeezed lemonade with raspberry ice cubes.
